Prospect Park: My Oasis in Brooklyn

Join Prospect Park Alliance in partnership with Photoville for Prospect Park: My Oasis in Brooklyn, a site-specific photo exhibition celebrating the work of legendary photographer Jamel Shabazz. The photographer, whose work is housed within the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, is best known for his iconic photographs of New York City in the 1980s. Exhibited along the construction fence surrounding Lefferts Historic House, the community of Brooklyn will be able to discover new stories and recognize old friends in Shabazz’s work.
